Ingredients
  

  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1 whole egg
  • ¼ - ½ cup water

Directions
 

  • 1. Sift flour and salt together in a large bowl. Make a well and add in the eggs.
  • 2. Using one hand, gently push small amounts of the flour into the eggs until a rough dough forms. Add in the water, 1 tablespoon at a time until the dough is pliable, but tough. (I used ¼ cup + 1 tbsp. water)
  • 3. Turn out the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 10 minutes. The dough should still be dough, but smooth.
  • 4. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  • 5. Divide the dough into 4 pieces and roll out as thinly as possible, preferably 1 cm thick.
  • 6. Put the dough through the pasta roller at the largest setting, folding it over a few times. Then increase the setting until the dough reaches your desired thickness. (I ran each piece of dough through settings 1-4 three times each and I could just barely see my fingers through it.)
  • 7. Use a knife or a pasta attachment to cut the dough.
  • 8. Dough can either be dried, frozen or cooked immediately. Fresh pasta takes 5 minutes to cook, dry pasta 8 minutes.
